The former Winn-Dixie property and the neighboring plaza could be sold at auction if Maitland Town Center developer Bob
Reese doesn't pay lender Mercantile Bank. The block of land is crucial to the project, and could be a deal-breaker for the city.


An Orange County judge
has given Maitland devel-
oper Bob Reese a simple
judgment: Pay Mercantile
Bank $8.2 million or a por-
tion of the Maitland Town
Center land will be sold on
March 26 to the highest
bidder.
The Feb. 10 judgment
could stall the mixed-use
pedestrian friendly down-
town, planned to be built
four blocks north of Lake
Lily on U.S. Highway 17-92.


The project has been de-
layed because of a lack of
funding, but this could be
the final blow to Reese's in-
volvement in the project.
"That may be a zero dol-
lar project right now," Mai-
tland CRA Director Verl
Emrick said. The foreclo-
sure could take Brossier Co.
developer Bob Reese "out
of the mix."
"If he's no longer able to
bring together the proper-
ty on the private side of the


equation, we have to start
over," he said.
Reese did not return re-
peated phone calls seeking
comment. His attorney also
didn't return calls.
Mercantile Bank loaned
Reese $7.5 million in Feb-
ruary 2008, which he used
to purchase a block of land
containing the former
Winn-Dixie and the Royal
Plaza at 17-92 and Horatio.

Candidates vie for Maitland seat

Bev Reponen and Bill Randolph attend a meet-and-greet on Wednesday, Feb. 24


KATIE KUSTURA
OBSERVER STAFF
Maitland City Council Seat 3
is up for grabs and two can-
didates are ready to fight for
it. Councilwoman Bev Re-
ponen seeks a second term
while challenger Bill Ran-
dolph, a 15-year city board
member, is ready to serve
the community he proudly
calls his home.
Howard Shieferdecker
is councilman-elect for


term-limited Councilman
Jeff Flowers' seat, as no one
challenged him.
The Observer sat down
with the candidates to get
their stances on important
issues:

Bev Reponen
Bev Reponen said she has
the time, the energy and the
desire and is ready to be re-
elected for Maitland City
Council Seat 3. She already


has three years on coun-
cil and feels she is the best
choice.
"That's definitely a learn-
ing experience that far sur-
passes being on any board
or any committee," Re-
ponen said. "You have to
learn how to read both sides
of the issue and get the facts
together and come up with
an opinion based on both
sides and their facts."

Texting law

in works

ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Will texting while driving be
banned in Winter Park? The
City Commission voted in
a Feb. 8 meeting to support
a resolution that would im-
plore the state to enact bans,
or at least allow local gov-
ernments to do so.
Talk of texting bans has
gained support across the
country, where 19 states
so far have banned texting
while driving.
Lawmakers in Tallahas-
see have been mulling over
similar measures, with some
municipalities joining in the
call to ban drivers sending
messages while behind the
wheel.
But the measure didn't
pass easily in Winter Park, as
two commissioners spoke
against regulating text mes-
saging while driving at a lo-
cal level.
"I don't feel qualified to
be an expert on the topic,
so I'd prefer to defer to the
state and let it come down
from the state," Commis-
sioner Phil Anderson said.
"I'm not convinced it needs
to be regulated."
Although Mayor Ken
Bradley and Commissioner
Margie Bridges spoke out in
favor of the resolution, An-
derson and Commissioner
Karen Diebel voted against
it.
A final "yes" vote from
Commissioner Beth Dillaha
was the tiebreaker.

An Olympic-sized passion

UCF freshman Kaitlyn Chana was chosen
as an Olympic torchbearer because of
her extraordinary charity work


BRITTNI JOHNSON
GUEST REPORTER
As soon as she stepped off
the bus, hundreds of people
were chanting her name,
"Kaitlyn, Kaitlyn, Kaitlyn."
Her thin Florida bones didn't
feel the bite of the 30-de-
gree Canadian weather; her
adrenaline was pumping.
The official Olympic run-
ning suit she was wearing
didn't hurt either.
UCF freshman Kaitlyn
Chana was one of 20 cho-
sen by Olympic sponsor
Coca-Cola to be an Olympic
torchbearer. Chana carried
the torch through Calgary
on its journey to the 2010
Winter Games in Vancouver,
getting to pass the torch off

to Olympic athlete Shawn
Johnson. Hundreds of chil-
dren gathered to meet her,
touch the torch and encour-
age her run while a band
played "O Canada" at her ar-
rival.
"It was one of those
proudest moments," said
Karen Chana, Kaitlyn's
mom. "You're almost in
tears it's so exciting."
Chana, who admits she's
not much of a runner, prac-
ticed every day once she
found out she would receive
the honor. But all her prac-
tice led to some overexcite-
ment the day of, when after
four tries they finally got her
torch lit.
"I took off running, and
security had to tell me to
slow down," she said with a
smile.
Carrying the torch was
her favorite part, mostly
because it reminded her of
what got her the honor in
the first place.
"I have a flame within me,
a passion to help others and
carry this excitement into
someone else's life," Chana
said.
Coca-Cola chose Chana

ing charity work. Chana is
founder and president of
Love Letters: Random Cards
of Kindness Inc., an idea she
got in the eighth grade. The
international charitycreates
inspirational homemade
cards for children with life-
threatening illnesses. Thou-
sands of volunteers around
the world send cards for
Chana to distribute. She has
sent 50,000 cards to chil-
dren internationally.
She said she hopes that
her volunteers will listen
to her experience carrying
the torch and put that same


excitement she felt into the
cards they make. And rather
than have the cards say "get
well," she wants them to in-
clude uplifting messages in-
stead.
"We're their cheerleader,
we're their backbone," Cha-
na said.
Many parents haven't
seen their child smile in
weeks or months, until the
moment a card is handed to
them, Karen said. One child
Chana remembered was a
little girl who had just got-
ten out of surgery and loved
princesses. Chana wore her


crown as Miss Winter Park's
Outstanding Teen and per-
sonally gave the girl a card.
Even just getting out of
surgery, the little girl's eyes
beamed, she clapped and
kicked her legs. Chana re-
membered the girl's mom.
"I could feel all the mean-
ing and energy in the one
'thank you' from the mom,"
she said.
"If I've put a smile on
someone else's face, if I've
made a difference, I've done
my job for the day," she
said.

CANDIDATES I Randolph and Schieferdecker aren't newcomers to Maitland scene


< continued from the front page

In addition to her time
on Council, she is a former
member of the Maitland
Personnel Board, a former
member of the Lakes Advi-
sory Board and is currently
the Chairwoman of the
Beautification Committee.
She's also vice mayor, filling
in for Mayor Doug Kinson
when he's absent.
She has certain goals she
would like to see accom-
plished, but wants to make
sure they are done in a fis-
cally responsible manner.
"First off, we've got to get
the fire station done," Re-
ponen said. She also wants
to work on attracting new
businesses, develop a mas-
ter plan for downtown and
the area on the west side of
Interstate 4, and work on
making Maitland a pedes-
trian-friendly city. To do this
it's important that things
are connected and acces-
sible, she said.
"I think the key to our
success is to make it as at-
tractive-looking as we can,"
said Reponen. "If we clean
up, spruce up and fix up, we
will attract people and we
will attract businesses."
She is confident that
cleaning things up will cre-
ate a domino effect in re-
gard to the rest of the city
and its development.
Reponen said a master
plan for the city must be
developed, among other
things.
"I really want to see Mait-
land become the future cul-
tural center of Florida," she
said, adding that the city's
current cultural corridor is
lacking.
Reponen also said that
the local Chamber of Com-
merce has been ignored and
that the city should devote
more time to helping the
organization.
"We have to take all of


these parts and make sure
they're successful," said the
35-year resident. "One of
the greatest places to live is
Maitland. It's safe, we have
excellent schools, and we
have really great churches.
It's just a great community."

Bill Randolph
As part of a military family
and a former member of the
U.S. Air Force, Bill Randolph
has lived in many places,
but he considers Maitland,
the place he's lived the lon-
gest, home.
For the past 20 years
Randolph has been a proud
member of the Maitland
community. Seventy-five
percent of that time has
been spent serving the com-
munity by working on vari-
ous boards. He has twice
served as the chair of the


Maitland Lakes Advisory
Board and once served as
the chair of the Maitland
Transportation Advisory
Board. He is also on the
Maitland Historical Society
Board of Directors.
"I think if I'm elected
then it's time to proverbi-
ally role up my sleeves and
get down to work and get
into this," Randolph said. "I
think I have the capability
of taking us to the next level
and looking out for our fu-
ture."
Aside from his time on
community boards, Ran-


dolph has 13 years expe-
rience in marketing and
public relations for JCR
Consulting (a landscape ar-
chitect firm), nine years of
marketing experience with
Professional Engineering
Consultants Inc. and a year
as Rockwell International's
technical editor.
"I bring a wide range of
experience to the seat, and I
think that makes for a better
decision-making process,"
Randolph said. "It's listen-
ing, and not just listening,
but hearing what people
have to say and looking
at things from a common
sense perspective."
If elected, he plans to con-
tinue working on lake im-
provement programs since
the lakes affect surrounding
property values. He would
also like to work on budget
impacts in correlation with
developing the city.
"We've got to really tight-
en our budget," Randolph
said. "The Maitland Center
has been our cash cow for a
quite few years."
Randolph hopes to work
on bringing in new business-
es to fill the center's current
vacancies. Doing this would
bring in more revenue for
continuing developments.
He has no intentions of
eliminating the civic cen-
ter or the library, he said.
He wants the community
to look at his qualifications
and what he's done, not the
rumors.
"I think about what I'm
going to say, and I listen to
both sides," he said. "I think
my record speaks for itself.
I'm not the type of person
to just throw something out
there and see what sticks."

Howard Schieferdecker
Howard Schieferdecker
may be semi-retired, but he
shows no signs of slowing
down. Having lived in Mai-
tland for almost 26 years


now, he's ready to give back
to the city he loves so dear-
ly.
"I really felt an urge to
serve," Schieferdecker said.
"The most important thing
for me is that I do the best
for the city of Maitland."
With his experience and
vast amount of knowledge
on construction, design and
finances, his primary goal is
to get a new fire station and
a new city hall built as soon
as possible. His hopes are
that the fire station will be
done within six months.
"What the government's
most important thing to do
is, in myopinion, provide the
best first responder service
they can for their citizens,
and also public works," said
Schieferdecker. "Water and
sewer and maintenance of
roads and things, those are
all very important."
Also on his list of things
to do for Maitland is acquir-
ing the necessary design
credentials for the proposed
downtown and bringing in
revenue by providing retail
opportunities instead of
raising taxes.
"In this economy, people
are hurting, so raising taxes
is very difficult," he said. "I'm
going to do everything I can
to not have to do that."
As far as the new city
hall goes, he hopes it will
be built with retail on the
first floor, which will attract
even more developers, busi-
nesses, customers and per-
haps even future citizens.
"The residential com-
munity here is a wonderful
place to live. It's important
that we do develop," said
Schieferdecker, who sees the
downtown development as
the only difference between
Maitland and Winter Park.
Schieferdecker is coun-
cilman-elect for term-lim-
ited Jeff Flowers' seat and
said that with the time he
would have dedicated to


campaigning, he will be
meeting with various mem-
bers of the community and
learning as much as he can.
He has already met with the
police chief, fire chief and
the head of parks and recre-
ation. He knows the rough
time that lies ahead and the
potential difficult decisions
he will have to make.
"I'm not going to have all
of the answers when I get
there, and I'm sure I'll do
some stumbling like every-
one else, but I hope I'll have
a lot of facts and basic un-
derstanding and informa-
tion.
"I'm just excited to get
started, I really am."


The Feb. 11 article "Candidates grapple at forum" incorrectly stated Winter Park City Commission candidate Carolyn Cooper's stance on having a commuter rail station
on Denning Drive. She does not support a station there.

Knights, Tars return to W column

After tough runs in conference play, the two local college basketball programs regain some momentum


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
Three days after falling to
Memphis 76-70 and drop-
ping below the .500 mark,
the UCF mens basketball
team bounced back with a
big win over Tulane on Sat-
urday night.
The Knights were knot-
ted with the Green Wave at
halftime, as they struggled
to break away in an increas-
ingly defensive game.
Things got worse in
the second period, as they
watched Tulane outpace
them by 8 points heading
into the closing minutes.
"We gutted it out," Coach
Kirk Speraw said after the
game. "It shows a sign of
maturity and competitive-
ness that we need to have."


But the Knights acceler-
ated late in the second half,
just as they shut down the
Tulane offense. They forced
the Green Wave to shoot just
33.3 percent overall, while
pushing their own shooting
to 50 percent.
Much of that shooting
prowess came from A.J.
Rompza who, burdened by
more inconsistency from
his teammates, carried the
scoring by himself with 17
points, 9 of which came
from 3-point land. He also
picked up 4 assists while
playing a season-high 39
minutes on the floor.
Despite taking more shot
attempts than anybody,
Marcus Jordan picked up
just 8 points on a 4-for-10
night. He did however once
again tie for the lead in steals


with 3. Scrappy play and an
uncanny ability to pull off
no-look bullet passes have
come to define the Knights'
guard, who picked up 4 re-
bounds and 4 assists in the
game.
Also making a big contri-
bution was Isaac Sosa, who
hit 13 points.
After taking on Houston
at press time, the Knights
travel to Southern miss for
an 8 p.m. Saturday tipoff.
They return home at 7 p.m.
Feb. 24 for their first show-
down against UAB.

Rollins
The Rollins Tars returned
to their winning ways with
two straight stompings of
conference foes this past
week. They trampled Barry
70-59 on Feb. 10 and edged


Tampa again 61-59 on Feb.
13.
That most recent win
included going point-for-
point with Tampa for a
nerve-wracking final pe-
riod, which saw both teams
score 31 points, as the Tars
(19-4, 10-2) narrowly held
onto a lead they'd carried
over from the half.
Nick Wolf picked up an-
other double-double with
10 points and 12 rebounds,
adding 4 assists as well. His
wild shooting necessitated
quite a few offensive re-
bounds, as he bricked all
but 4 of his 15 shots in the
game, including 5 straight
misses from outside the big
arc.
They played Nova South-
eastern at press time but
will travel to St. Leo for a 4

Wildcats shocked in district finale

Despite strong play by Austin Rivers and a big lead in second half, Winter Park falls in overtime thriller


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
The Winter Park Wildcats
had a 12-point lead going
into the final minutes of
the district championship,
but they watched in hor-
ror as the Edgewater Eagles
stripped it away. And as a
packed overtime crowd
looked on, the Eagles' Ken-
drick Perry dropped a
3-pointer to swing the score


to 73-71 just as the clock
ticked to zero.
Pandemonium from an
Eagles home crowd explod-
ed onto the court as the
Wildcats (23-5) wondered
what could have been. For
the first time in five years,
they were not district cham-
pions.
The final act in a five-part
drama on the court saw the
Eagles (25-3) slowly pick
apart a vast Wildcat lead


with the smallest of scores.
As a near-perfect Edgewa-
ter performance at the free
throw line eroded the scor-
ing gap point by point, the
Wildcats struggled to keep
up.
And in the final minute, it
all came apart.
At one point in the game
the Wildcats seemingly
had a win in the bag, with
a 19-point lead in the sec-
ond half that had come on


the mounting difference in
scoring by the two seeming-
ly talent-disparate teams.
In the shrinking blowout-
turned-overtime-shocker,
Wildcat star Austin Riv-
ers scored 28 points, 21 of
which came from 3-point
land.
Now both teams are
headed for the playoffs,
with Winter Park in the
runner-up spot for the first
time since before any of its


players had donned a Wild-
cat jersey.
As runners up, the Wild-
cats start off without a
home court advantage,
opening regional play at 7
p.m. Thursday against Win-
ter Springs.
If they prevail, they could
find themselves in a re-
match against Edgewater
on Feb. 23.

WINTER PARK I Renewable energy and business incentives also hot topics


< continued from the front page

Renewable energy in Win-
terPark'sfuture?
Later in that same meet-
ing Bradley suggested the
city look into adding renew-
able energy sources in their
upcoming utility contract.
"I for one want to have
the opportunity to use re-
newable energy sources
right now," Bradley said.
He pointed to a project in
Gainesville, which purports
that it will develop 100
megawatts of electricity via


a wood-fired biomass elec-
tric generator just outside
the city.
Bradley suggested that
the city should adopt a more
proactive stance on similar
technologies.
"The buildings we're
building now I know are
green oriented, but as far
as I know there's no solar
or anything in it, and that's
something I think we need
to address as a Commis-
sion," Bradley said. "There's
a wide gap between what
we know now and where


we want to be, and I want to
close that gap."
Bridges agreed that the
city should at least look into
legislative measures to move
toward greener energy.
"I'd like to see something
be developed in terms of
policy in that area," Bridges
said.
Economic incentives for
businesses could accelerate
Winter Park's economic
development director Dori
DeBord may have only been
in the city for a short time,
but she's pushing forward


measures that could help
accelerate economic devel-
opment.
She presented parts of an
economic incentive pack-
age to make it easier for
businesses to set up shop
within the city, including a
successful business facade
grant program and micro
loan program.
But the Commission
seemed to perk up when
she mentioned speeding up
permitting to help business-
es open sooner.
"We need to be looking at


expedited permitting pro-
cesses," DeBord said. "We'll
be talking to additional city
staff to flush those out a lit-
tle bit."
Dillaha said it's about
time.
"When are we going
to start doing this? We've
talked about it for a long
time, but I just don't see any
changes in that regard," Dil-
laha said.
"Being that I've been here
all of 60 days I'm doing my
best to get a jump start on
this," DeBord said.


BROSSIER I Officials optimistic project will be built, but changes will be made


< continued from the front page

He defaulted on the loan by
not paying the May 2009
payment.
"Brossier also defaulted
under the loan documents
by failing to pay the 2007
and 2008 real estate taxes,"
the judgment reads.
The courts have awarded
Mercantile Bank the full
principal of the loan, plus
nearly $705,000 in interest,
$5,500 for attorney's fees


and $3,682 for court costs.
Reese has the option of rais-
ing the capital on his own
before the March 26 dead-
line.
But if that doesn't hap-
pen, that crucial block of
land could be sold to the
highest bidder.
Maitland Mayor Doug
Kinson remained optimistic
Monday.
"Put it this way the
property hasn't changed


hands," Kinson said. "Until
the property changes hands,
it would be at that point we
would deal with the new
owner. And there's no indi-
cation to me the property
is going to change hands at
this point."
Kinson, who is running
for the Orange County Com-
mission, said the Maitland
Town Center will get built.
"It's one of the prime pieces
of land ... There's commit-


ment by the city to move it
ahead. It's just a matter of
timing at this point."
Mary Hodge, the execu-
tive director of the Maitland
Chamber of Commerce said
she thinks the corridor will
eventually be built out, but
probably not in one fell
swoop.
"I don't think you're go-
ing to see the CRA follow-
ing that original plan,"
Hodge said. "I think you'll


see them continue to work
on the builder's agreement
and pull segments out of it.
I don't think you'll see any
real rush with that build-
out."
Emrick said that without
that piece of the property,
Reese wouldn't be able to
fulfill the agreement he has
with the city.
"There we are: Between a
rock and a hard place," Em-
rick said.

If you're retired or


planning
retirement, you
probably know that it can
be smart to convert funds
into a Roth IRA. But what
exactly are the advantages
and the challenges of converting?
The more you understand
how a Roth IRA works, the
moreyou will appreciate
IRA- "Taxed to T ax-F ree"
Offset Planning.'

AROTH IRAHAS3 BIG
ADVANTAGES OVER A
TRADITIONAL IRA.
First and foremost, the
money you withdraw from
a Roth IRA can be 100%
income tax-free.
Second, the original
owner is never forced to
take required minimum
distributions from a Roth.
Finally, unlike a standard
IRA, qualified Roth IRA
withdrawals will not trigger
ajump in your Social
Security taxable rate.


TAX-FREE FOR
GENERATIONS
A Roth IRA also allows
you to leave a tax-free
legacy to your children and
your grandchildren. The
full amount of your Roth
IRA can be spread over
their lifetime and they will
never pay a penny of tax.

FORTUNATELY, YOU
CAN CONVERT AN
IRATO AROTH
T heT ax Increase Prevention
and Reconciliation
Act (T IPRA) included
provisions for converting a
traditional IRA to a Roth
I RA-significant because it
allows for tens of millions
more Americans to now be
eligibleto gain the benefits
of tax-free income


A SMARTER WAY
TO REACH YOUR
RETIREMENT GOALS
By possibly reducing the impact of
the cost associated
with converting, I RA-
"T axed to T ax-F ree" Offset
Planning' helps remove
the single biggest barrier to
achieving the benefits of a
Roth IRA. In the process
it provides a smarter, faster
way to reach your goals-
whether you want to build
tax-free future income for
your retirement, or achieve
an income tax-free legacy
for your children and
grandchildren.
I n this one hour seminar, we
Make it easy to understand

how to successfully transfer
trapped money out of your

POLICE DEPARTMENT
RECEIVES REACCREDITA-
TION
On Feb. 3, the Winter Park
Police Department (WPPD)
received its reaccreditation
status, a status that signifies
the highest standards of
professionalism for Florida


Winter Park City Talk
BY RANDY KNIGHT
CITY MANAGER


law enforcement agencies.
The Commission for
Florida Law Enforcement
Accreditation (CFA)
serves as the independent
reviewing authority that
certifies if an agency has
met the professional
standards and specific
requirements, which are
designed exclusively for
Florida law enforcement
agencies.
"Accreditation assures
you that your police
department is providing
the highest level of law
enforcement service to
the community they serve
as well as going hand-in-
hand with community
policing," said Bob
Merchant, Altamonte
Springs Police chief and
CFA commissioner, at the
Feb. 8 Winter Park City
Commission meeting.
WPPD received initial
accredited status in 2000
and was reaccredited in
2003 and 2006. December
2009 marked the next
three-year cycle for this
prestigious designation.
At that time, a team of
assessors composed of law
enforcement practitioners
from similar agencies
began the reaccreditation
review process for Winter
Park by examining all
aspects of the department's
policies and procedures,
management, operations
and support services.
The overall conclusions
of the CFA assessment
team's final report stated,
"The assessment team
was very impressed
with the Winter Park
Police Department.
The employees of
this agency are highly
trained, motivated and
professional. Every
employee interviewed was
enthusiastic and they all


truly enjoy the services they
provide. Every member of
the agency encountered
was familiar with and
supports accreditation. It
is very clearly a part of the
culture of the agency and
it shows in their day-to-day
operations."

FIRE-RESCUE RECEIVES
GRANT TO HELP WITH
CARDIAC NEEDS
Time is muscle. Now with
the assistance of $224,100
from the Department
of Homeland Security
Assistance to Firefighters
Grant (AFG), Winter Park
Fire-Rescue Department
(WPFD) will be able save
valuable heart muscle by
purchasing advanced, state-
of-the-art cardiac monitor/
defibrillators for every
Advanced Life Support
Unit in the department (10
units).
When WPFD responds
to an emergency medical
call, 98 percent of the
time cardiac monitoring
is performed. For patients
experiencing sudden
cardiac arrest or a heart
attack, the new 12-
lead advanced cardiac
defibrillators deliver
a therapeutic dose of
electrical energy to the
affected heart. It also
provides improved EKG
interpretation that assists
paramedics in diagnosing
heart attacks.
The new machines
are lighter weight, more
durable, and suitable
for use in multiple and
extreme conditions. They
have color, scratch-resistant
screens for better visibility,
are water resistant, and the
batteries last three times as
long as the older models.

Enzian Theatre Day. Sigrid
Tiedke, owner, and Henry
Maldonado, Enzian's new
president, were my hosts
for this most prestigious
evening.
Twenty-five years ago,
Tina Tiedtke celebrated the
opening of Enzian with a
screening of the 1919 silent
classic "Broken Blossoms".
Lillian Gish attended that
showing and from that
day on, Enzian has been an
important fixture in the
community a temple to
the cinematic spirits and, to
quote a regular guest, "the
only civilized way to watch
a movie."


The Enzian Theater
began as a repertory house,
offering six to 12 classic
films each week as well as
the occasional live show. By
1989, Enzian had refocused
and moved into the then-
risky field of showing first-
run independent features.
But most importantly, it
was Tina's dream to create
a gathering place for the
community a place that
serves as a home base to
connect and celebrate
the magic of the movies.
Today, the Enzian Theater
is Central Florida's only
full-time, not-for-profit
alternative cinema.
Enzian illuminates
the silver screen nightly
as well as the hearts and
minds of its supporters.
Today, Enzian entertains,


inspires and educates the
community through film;
and has championed the
belief that "Film is Art." To
date, Enzian has served
nearly 2 million guests
in the past quarter of a
century.
Enzian has grown
to become one of the
top grossing first-
run independent film
theaters in the nation,
producing five cultural
film festivals including the
world renowned Florida
Film Festival. Its 25th
anniversary is a celebration
of the vision that has
gone into maintaining
its mission: to entertain,
inspire, educate and
connect the community
through film. The success
of the Florida Film
Festival is evidence of this
commitment.
The Florida Film Festival,
founded in 1992, showcases
and celebrates the finest
in American independent
and foreign films. The
festival provides continuing
education and support
for the emerging Florida
filmmaking community
and greatly enhances the
region's cultural identity,


providing exposure to film
art of varying genre.
Henry Maldonado
recently became the new
president of the Enzian
Theater. He has lived
and breathed the Enzian
Theater over the years and
is now in a position to be
able to spread the word
of the Enzian, not only
nationally with the Florida
Film Festival, but just as
importantly, locally.
Henry's dream is to
market the Enzian not just
as a movie destination,
but also a community
destination, where patrons
come from all around to
enjoy a movie, a meal or a


beverage in one of the most
spectacular surroundings in
the area.
The city of Maitland is
honored to be the home
of Enzian Theater, which
has offered a wonderful
opportunity for residents,
visitors and businesses to
enjoy annual film festivals,
and much more. I am proud
to have been a part of such
a trendsetting organization
and look forward to
enjoying all that the Enzian
has to offer in the future.

An Altamonte Springs woman is on her way to Minnesota to donate a kidney to a man she's met once


CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER

Her bags are packed and
not a trace of doubt lingers
in the Altamonte Springs
woman's mind as she pre-
pares to board a plane to
Minnesota, precious cargo
for a man awaiting a kidney
transplant.
Cynthia Love, 52, is flying
to meet Thomas Wirt, 66,
from Lewiston, Minn. for
only the second time, but
this time she will give him
what he wants most: an ac-
tive and healthy retirement
through the donation of
one of her kidneys.

"I just kept hoping some-
one would come forward
and offer me a kidney or one
would become available,"
Wirt said. "I thank God that
she chose me to give her
kidney to."
He first found out he
needed a kidney transplant
in January 2007. He had
been on the national de-
ceased donor waiting list for
about a year and a half, re-
ceiving dialysis three times
a week, when he posted a
profile on the site.
The two met in person
for the first time in Decem-


ber when Love had to fly up
for some additional testing.
"I knew she was full of
love like her name says,"
Wirt said.
Love, being just as enam-
ored with Wirt, said, "Tom is
soft-spoken and a joy to be
around."
Knowing individuals liv-
ing healthy lives with just
one kidney, Love said she
never doubted her deci-

when she met Wirt for the
first time.

PHOTO COURTESY OF VALENCIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE PHOTOGRAPHER DON BURLINSON
The University Center at Valencia Commuity College's west campus is basked in the morning sun. New buildings are going up to keep pace with the increase in enrollment.

Seminole State easier on students' budgets, keeps them closer to home


KAREN McENANY-PHILLIPS
OBSERVER STAFF

Michael Presco is part of an
increasing demographic of
students that are pushing
aside four-year college bro-
chures in favor of spend-
ing their first two years at a
smaller, local college.
A student at Seminole
State College of Florida,
Presco is taking advantage
of lower tuition costs and
being closer to his family's
home.
"I have friends who went
away to big schools like FSU
and LSU," Presco said, "but
they had bad time-manage-
ment skills, failed out and
came back here.
"You're actually a per-
son here, not a number,
and home is right down the
road."
Statistics show that cost
is the No. 1 reason students
choose to attend two-year
colleges. However there are
equally compelling reasons
such as smaller class size,
one-on-one time with pro-
fessors, the ability to get
classes at desired times, and
the convenience of being
close to home.
Seminole State College
and Valencia Community
College are both seeing a
steady increase in enroll-
ments, according to school
officials.

Seminole State
College of Florida
Formerly known as Semi-
nole Community College,
SSC boasts a 32 percent in-
crease in new student en-
rollment this spring, said
Pamela Mennechey, direc-
tor of Admissions and Re-
cruiting for SSC.
With 65 pre-major choic-
es and its first baccalaure-
ate class in Interior Design,
SSC has experienced eight
straight quarters of double
digit enrollment increases


at its four sites.
Osteen resident Melissa
Bernosky began her college
experience at SSC's Heath-
row campus in January. She
graduated from Pine Ridge
High School last year then
took a semester off to ana-
lyze her options.
Bernosky plans to study
nursing at the University of
Central Florida, is majoring
in respiratory care at Semi-
nole State College and at-
tends classes at the Heath-
row and Lake Mary/Sanford
campus.
"It's a totally different en-
vironment than high school
- you make your own deci-
sions," Bernosky said.
Standing out at the SSC
Lake Mary/Sanford campus
is the new four-story, $30
million Partnership Center.
The building houses a new
library, classrooms, a stu-
dent communications cen-
ter and UCF Direct Connect
headquarters. Students will
find increased computer ac-
cess, interactive study rooms
and student services.
"We have many student
services including a team
that answers nothing but fi-
nancial aid, records and ad-
missions questions," Men-
nechey said.
Students holding Bright
Futures Scholarships expe-
rience significant savings,
which will continue for the
first two years at Seminole
State College, Mennechey
said.

Valencia Community
College
Valencia Community Col-
lege accepts Bright Futures
as well and has more than
4,000 recipients this semes-
ter, said Lucy Boudet, assis-
tant vice president of Mar-
keting and Media Relations.
A credit hour at VCC is
$87.36 with $78 covered
through Bright Futures.
Valencia Community


College is also experiencing
significant growth in enroll-
ment. "Our snapshot this se-
mester reflects a 10 percent
increase over last year's en-
rollment of 50,255," Boudet
said. "Valencia provides a
huge economic advantage
for parents who are strug-
gling. Their child gets a great
education for half the cost."
VCC participates in the
Direct Connect program
where registered students
are guaranteed acceptance
upon graduation into UCF.
VCC is the largest feeder
into UCF, which has become
a destination school for stu-
dents outside of Central
Florida.
Retention of students
from fall to spring has been
a major focus at Valencia
with positive results. While
the average retention rate
is 60 percent, Valencia's is
85 percent. Small classes,
teams of advisory counsel-
ors and a vision that "any-
one can learn given the
right circumstances" have
supported the effort.
"We put extraordinary
emphasis on not only help-


ing them succeed but to go
on. We want to build path-
ways with a team behind
them in, through and be-
yond the community col-
lege experience," she said.
Feeding new student en-
rollment is an even greater
escalation in applications.
Last spring more than 3,300
applications were received
at SSC compared to 5,300
this spring.
Mennechey cautions that
the process takes time -
application for enrollment
and financial aid, verifica-
tion of Florida residency,
completion of entrance ex-
ams and online orientation,
providing transcripts, and
scheduling first-time-in-
college advisement.
"If I could give students
and parents one message it
would be to complete the
application process early.
Last year we had 350 appli-
cations we could not pro-
cess because they came in
too late. We like to do some
hand-holding but we can't
if they wait too long," she
said.

donor they were like, 'We
could never repay you' and I
was like, 'Ok, I don't want to
be repaid."'
She first became interest-
ed in organ donation after
trying to be a donor to her
nephew Kenny, 39, who re-


ceived a kidney transplant
in July to some success.
She wasn't compatible
with him. But through re-
search of donor transplants
she found the site and came
across Wirt's story.
"It's been a very difficult
process to see him (Kenny)
go through it all," she said.


"But I thought, if I'm healthy
and wanted to donate to
him, then I could donate to
anyone.
"I look at life a little dif-
ferent. I truly believe we
are all brothers and sisters,
and if we acted like that the
world would be a much bet-
ter place."


Jane Neal, Love's sister
and Kenny's mother, said
she is proud of her sister's
bravery and generosity.
"It's too bad she wasn't
able to help my son, but I
think it's great," she said.
"We need more people like
her that are brave, healthy
and willing to do it."


Auston Love, 23, Love's
younger son, was skeptical
of his mother's decision in
the beginning.
"I think it's incredibly
generous and altruistic," he
said. "I was shocked at first.
... It's a big deal to me, to be
completely healthy and give
up one of your own body
parts, but she really wants
to do it, and I support her."
The surgery is scheduled
after press time Wednes-
day at the Mayo Clinic in
Rochester, Minn., one of the
115 clinics involved with
Matchingdonors.com, said
Dr. Jeremiah Lowney, medi-
cal director of the site.
He said the site, which
has about 7,600 potential
donors listed, was designed
to promote living trans-
plant donations to decrease
the more than 100,000 peo-
ple waiting on the national
list.
Wirt and Love will be
linked for life by an unfor-
tunate disease and an act of
altruism.
"She's the kind of person
to be like in this world," Wirt
said.

Local artists make good

real good!


Painter Bobby Goldsboro at
Gallery at Avalon Island
Baby-boomers remember
Bobby Goldsboro as a sing-
er known for his mega-hits
"Honey" and "Little Green
Apples". More recently,
Mr. Goldsboro has found
acclaim as a fine art oil
painter with the multi-tal-
ented artist selling out six
art shows in the past two
years. As a painter, he has
sold hundreds of originals
and prints including a pur-
chase by the Gateway Bank
(Ocala), which bought 31
of his prints to display there
permanently.
Mr. Goldsboro has re-
turned to the gallery that
hosted his very first show -
the Gallery at Avalon Island
in downtown Orlando, and
the public is invited to at-
tend. Promising 30 new
paintings for this exhibit,
the art will hang through
March 10.
This Florida-born artist
began his fine art career
traveling throughout the
state, bringing to life Flor-
ida's ever-changing land-
scapes. He is now adding
what he calls "memories
on canvas" from his travels
around the world including
Tuscan still-lifes, flowers,
horses and even abstracts!
"I've started a series of
abstract oil paintings based
on photographs from the
Hubble spacecraft. It's a
whole different kind of
painting and I love it," he
says.
This man's music has
stirred the emotions; now,
his paintings are doing the
same.
The Gallery at Avalon
Island is located at the cor-
ner of Magnolia and Pine in
downtown Orlando with


exhibit hours Thursday
through Saturday from 11
a.m. to 4 p.m. Contact Jeff
Shonkwiler at 407-803-
6670 or visit GalleryatA-

The Orlando Ballet
'one night only'
They've booked this perfor-
mance for one night only,
so anyone who loves dance
will need to be at the beau-
tiful Linda Chapin Theatre
at the Orange County Con-
vention Center for this ex-
clusive Orlando Ballet per-
formance at 8 p.m. Friday,
Feb. 19.
I saw the press preview
for this event, and it is ab-
solutely not to be missed.
The performance features
several brand-new dances
by the Company's Artistic
Director Robert Hill, who
is a major choreographer.
Orlando is fortunate to
have this talent as the artis-
tic head of our local ballet
company, and the impor-
tance of the works he is
creating must be seen to be
appreciated.
The performance carries
a heavy Latin theme, featur-
ing works including dan-
zon, tango and some spicy
salsa! In addition, Mexico's
award-winning ballerina,
Katia Garza, will perform
a sensual Argentine tango
with her husband, Israel
Rodriguez, of Cuba. The
company's dancers come
from Europe, Asia, North
and South America, as well
as the Caribbean. Under
Hill's artistic direction,
the Company has brought
audiences to their feet
with a brilliant infusion
of contemporary dance -
from break dancing and


r


pop-locking to a glimpse of
moon walking... all in cel-
ebration of the 'new' ballet!

Orlando artist wins bronze at
Paris' Grand Palais
Talk about "Local Artist
Makes Good!!!" Orlando's
own Edson Campos has
won the bronze medal in
the most famous continu-
ing art exhibition in histo-
ry. From its first exposition
in 1667, the French Salon
has hosted the painters
we study and 'visit' in the
world's great museums. In-
gres, Cassatt, Renoir, Monet,
Cezanne, Degas and Rodin
have all shown works in
Paris' French Salon. Now
the name Edson Campos
may be added to that list of
renown.
Campos, who has lived
and worked in Winter Park
since 1987, was awarded
the bronze medal for
painting in that supremely
prestigious exhibit in a
competition that included
over 500 painters. It was
held at the architectural
masterpiece known as the
Grand Palais in Paris, which
was built in 1900 to host art
events and expositions and
is the only building of its
kind to have survived the
times.
Following centuries of
tradition, each artist was
allowed to show only one
painting, which would be
judged by a panel of French
judges. Entitled "Opera,"
Campos' large oil painting
is 68 inches by 92 inches on
canvas, and had to be spe-
cially prepared for travel
from Campos' Florida
studio to its prize-winning
home in Paris. Campos'
work may be seen in col-
lections around the world.
He is represented in Orlan-
do at the Gallery at Avalon
Island. Call 407-644-9517.

Central Florida. One of the
best ways to do that is to
meet (in-person) some of
the artists who are working
to make our community a
better place to live every
day. Especially in this crazy
economy, many of these
artists hold some kind of
"day job" everything
from loading rides at the
theme parks to teaching
our children. Many of those
fine artists have working
studios at a huge ware-
house "down by the tracks"
in Winter Park.
In order to "meet the
community," those artists
are beginning a new se-
ries of open studio nights
at McRae they are calling
"Inside the Studios." Three
times this year they are in-
viting us, the public, to visit
their space to see the art-
ists working while allowing
us to meet them, to watch,
sit and ask questions. This
will provide a rare oppor-
tunity to get an insider's
glimpse into the artists'
working process... and
trust me, there is no better
way to buy original art. The
studio visits are scheduled
on the last Wednesday
of the month Feb. 24,
March 31, and May 26 from
5:30 to 7:30 p.m. McRae Stu-
dios are located at 904 Rail-
road Ave. in Winter Park.

as she shot and killed her
15-year-old brother with a
shotgun when she was 20
(ruled accidental) and that
she was investigated for a
potential bomb incident
dealing with her doctoral
dissertation and the chair-
man of her review com-
mittee. Hmmm? I do see a
trend, some unfortunate
coincidences.
I'd like to see her tested
for testosterone. I typically
reserve such craziness as
strictly a male prerogative.
Although we are seeing an
uptick in the ever-so-fash-
ionable Muslim practice of
female suicide bombings.
Not to be outdone by their
male fanatics, Islamic fe-
males are stepping up to
the plate, taking their swing
at martyrdom for the cause
of jihad.
I always find religious ex-
tremism so attractive (don't
you?), such that when one
branch (say Sunnis) of
the same religion blows
to smithereens adherents


of another branch (say
Shite's), well, it's downright
inspiring their religious
faith. A faith so profound it
makes me question why we
have separation of church
and state in America. Let's
bring that old time 15th
century religion back to
America, too. Recall when
Christians butchered one
another with the same ease
that Muslims do today. Ah,
that old time religion. Gotta
love it. But I digress.
Women and violence.
Maybe it is just now occur-
ring to American females
that being smaller and
physically weaker typi-
cally speaking than men
is no impediment at all
when extracting one's
pound of flesh. For thou-
sands of years women have
had to put up with insult
after insult, not to mention
the injuries. Violence and
oppression of women has
been the historical norm.
Less than 100 years ago
women in America couldn't
vote. Examine 19th cen-
tury state laws and you will
be amazed that women
couldn't divorce, couldn't
own property and for darn
sure, couldn't vote. They
were even unwelcome as
participants at pre-Civil
War abolitionist meetings
(to eliminate slavery) an
irony that was not lost on
the feminists of that time.
Over the years I've
taught a history class or
two, and if the material
warranted it I would ask


the female class partici-
pants to speculate on, gen-
erally speaking (specifics
abound), why men have
been so beastly to women?
Where did the idea come
from that women weren't
as capable as men, weren't
as smart or creative and/
or that their input unnec-
essary when community
decisions were made. Imag-
ine the world today (our
species) if women all along
had been free and equal to
men, their perspective and
insights considered, their
values and votes counted.
As those of their male coun-
terparts. I am not na ve
to think women perfect
(hardly) but I do believe
they bring to the table "val-
ues" that are not necessarily
so prevalent in/from the
male perspective.
You say, "Oh, Jepson,
there you go again." Oh? It
came as no surprise to me
that quite quickly during
the current Haitian relief
effort, food coupons were
given to women only. Why
you ask? Because the chil-
dren weren't getting fed
when it was a free for all.
More than likely, most
students (male & female)
would cite the differences
in size and strength and
the unique role females
have in the perpetuation
of the species (females get
pregnant) as the primary
reasons women were con-
sidered "less" than men.
Go figure on that. Granted,
when confronting violence
(securing food or com-
bat), I'd just a soon have an
equivalent male (6 foot 4,
200 pounds) at my side as
a "typical" female. But for
all those "other" life experi-
ences in prehistoric times,
women brought as much
(or more) to the table as
most males.
My sister believes that
one of the reasons women
have been historically se-
questered and controlled is
because of sex. I have a joke
(Hah! Hah!) I say that goes,
"No man knows for sure"


who the father of his child
is. I know it's cynical but
being cuckolded and rais-
ing another man's sperm
contribution has been a
troubling, perplexing issue
(for men) since the git-go.
Since Tom and Dick court-
ed Mary. Paternity isn't the
issue it once was (what
with genetic testing) but
old male fears (instincts?)
die hard.
For whatever the reasons
men treated and consid-
ered women inferior, their
beliefs became institution-
alized in our religions. Look
at Christianity. Look at Ca-
tholicism today. Male man-
agement hierarchies/bu-
reaucracies where women
are unwelcome. Attempts at
controlling female sexual-
ity and reproduction. These
are vestiges of male domi-
nance passing for religious
authority. Ridiculous and
absurd in every sense of the
meaning.
Martin Luther, as re-
pugnant an anti-Semite
as ever lived, changed the
course of history when he
nailed up his 95 Theses and
started the Reformation.
Prior to Martin Luther, the
clergy did not consort with
(marry) women. Too good
for the ladies they were
(are?). Well, Martin Luther
changed that by marrying.
Big impact on the status of
women. Good enough now
for God's spokesman they
(women) were.
Even more significant
was Martin Luther's in-
sistence that women be
taught to read. Prior to this
period in history (circa
1500 Europe), women
were not educated to read.
Luther thought everyone
should have access to God,
through reading his "ver-
nacularized" Bible.
Well, that started all sorts
of things and arguably,
here we are today in the
West where women have
achieved near, if not equiv-
alent, equality with men.
Granted, there remains pay
inequities and some profes-


sions have not entirely or
warmly embraced the idea
of gender equity. But the
day will come when the
Congressional buffoons,
our Supreme Court and
the presidency will all have
female majorities or leader-
ship and we'll say, with our
rosy revisionist glasses on,
"Oh, for the good ol' daze
when the boys ran things!"
Or, maybe not.
I think we should get out
of Afghanistan today but
before we leave we should
give every woman and girl
there a 45-caliber pistol
with enough rounds (and
training) to protect herself
and her sisters from the
male abuses and oppres-
sion that comes from living
in that 15th century misog-
ynistic, theocratic, repres-
sive hellhole. And exit visas
for all Afghan women who
are smart enough to know
that to stay is doom.
Examine the images
(stories/myths) that our
daughters today are now
being exposed to (and who
willingly embrace) and you
will clearly come away with
the understanding that
it "ain't no more" Nancy
Drew stories that are cap-
tivating our girls. It is now
Super Heroines who don't
take "Nothing off nobody!
No time! No way!" And. Let
a few years pass.
Make'um sometimes
"real pissed-off honey's,"
21st century modern-day
women with an edge, an at-
titude and a pistol and well,
shoot'um-up, bang-bang
becomes the new norm.
I heartily recommend
to my more introspective
brothers that it's a new
morn' in America. Be civil.
Be respectful. Be consider-
ate. Always. And, it's still OK
to open a door for a lady.
After all, she may be
packin'. Hah! Hah! Hmmm.

Cooper does not want
stop at Denning
I am contacting you con-
cerning your paper's seri-
ous misquote of Carolyn
Cooper (in "Candidates
grapple at forum" pub-
lished Feb. 11). In your
coverage of the debate at
City Hall, you quoted her as
saying the exact opposite
of what she really said. The
Observer quoted her as say-
ing that she was in favor of
a rail stop at Denning. This
is a major problem. She said
clearly that she was against
a rail stop at Denning.
In the past, I have trusted
your paper as a source of
factual information about
our city. Now I question


the accuracy of all of your
stories. I would expect your
writers to double-check
their facts, especially since
an audio tape recording of
her exact words is available.
Here is what she really
said:
"Relative to Denning, I
don't believe that two stops
for Winter Park would be
feasible, or could we stand
the expense, because you
need to understand how
you're going to pay for this
rail. So I would say to you
that I would not support
another stop on Denning.
Primarily because we don't
need another stop. I would
always prefer that the stop
be on a major arterial road,


but not a major arterial
road that feeds into Den-
ning and feeds into Park
Avenue. I think the traffic
coming from Oviedo to the
commuter rail stops would
be very detrimental to our
community, so I would not
support a Denning loca-
tion."
This will be very difficult
to fix on your part. I would
like to see a full retraction
and apology from your pa-
per. Anything less would
make your paper lose cred-
ibility in this community.

Budget strong for
health, education
With the opening of the
2010 Legislative Session a
few weeks away, Gov. Char-
lie Crist recently released
his proposed budget for the
fiscal year 2010-2011. The
total amount the governor
proposes the state spend
for next year is $69.2 bil-
lion, an increase over the
$66 billion allocated for the
current fiscal year.
When I first took office
in 2006, our state budget
was $73 billion; however
the economic turmoil over
the last few years has cer-
tainly taken its toll. Out of
the major policy areas, the
breakdown is as follows for


"The People's Budget": 3.1
percent allocated to envi-
ronment, 2.6 percent al-
located to general govern-
ment, 0.6 percent allocated
to the legislature/governor,
7.5 percent allocated to
public safety, and 14.1 per-
cent allocated for transpor-
tation and economic devel-
opment.
The governor's proposed
budget requests an alloca-
tion of $21.5 billion for ed-
ucation (31.1 percent of his
budget proposal) and $28.4
billion for health and hu-
man services (41.1 percent
of his budget proposal). As
you can see, 72.2 percent
of next year's budget as

"You are entitled to your own opinions-
you are not entitled to your own facts"
Daniel Patrick Moynihan

In a manner of
speaking
I could wish that every
one of us had a boyhood
like mine.
My parents were philo-
sophical and scrupulously
honest.
The old adage "Be good
to each other" was never far
from my family's expressed
behavior.
Good manners prevailed
in every part of our life.
"Please" and "thank you"
filled the air.
"Be on time," I was told.
"Being late without a valid
excuse is immoral, because
time is worth money. Steal
a person's time and you
might as well be stealing his
money."
My parents told me to
stick to the "unvarnished
truth."
How often did I hear,
"Oh, what a tangled web
we weave when first we


Thursday, February 18, 2010 Page 15


practice to deceive?" Surely,
often enough to implant
Sir Walter Scott's famous
words from Lochinvar se-
curely in my mind forever.
"A liar needs a superb
memory," I was reminded.
"When you tell the straight,
simple truth, you don't have
to remember some 'version'
you may have told before."
"What is a perfect 'man'
like, Granny?" I asked.
She said, "A doer. A giver.
Kind, direct, correct con-
siderate of well-meaning
people's feelings. Not a
schemer or a manipulator,
rather an intelligent per-
son of good manners a
gentleman."
Granny pointed out that
none of those attributes
was beyond my striving for,
as a young boy.
"Manners make the
man," she told me, explain-
ing that good manners are
the "final touch" that iden-
tifies a true gentleman.
"To judge a person's
character," she told me,
"observe how he treats
those under him, not the
way he treats his superiors."
My grandmother put
great importance on the
proper manners of a host,
and the manners of being
a good guest in someone
else's house.
"A good guest makes a
good host. And a good host
ought to be able to make
a good guest but that
doesn't always work."
She drilled into me to
"be someone they'll want to
invite again."
Of course, I was taught
always to stand when "la-
dies, or elders, entered the
room."
To this day, I still get up
under those circumstances,
although I'm having a


tougher and tougher time
locating anyone who is
"older than I!"
Throughout my youth, I
followed the rule of giving
my streetcar seat to any el-
der who was standing.
As one who entertains
a lot, I can tell you that a
great number of otherwise
dependable people ignore
RSVP, that time-honored
and very practical request.
"RSVP" says simply,
"Please tell me if you're
coming or not."
When people do not re-
spond to your RSVP, it's best
to prepare for their coming,
but oh yes you're never
ever inviting them again!
To my grandmother,
such people were, at least,
"bumpkins" whose proper
social life lay outside the
boundaries of polite human
intercourse.
They were, therefore, not
worth fooling with.
Old-fashioned colorful
colloquialisms aside, it is
worthwhile to ask ourselves
how many of our acquain-
tances may feel that we are
not worth "fooling with," as
to manners.
Are they right?
I find that writing a note
is a good way to convey
thanks that stick. A thank-
you note after having been
a guest at a meal is, to me,
de rigueur
Edmund Burke, the great
18th-century Irish philoso-
pher, said, "Manners are of
more importance than laws
... Manners are what vex or
soothe, corrupt or purify,
exalt or debase, barbarize
or refine us ..."
Bad manners can inflict
something close to pain
upon the recipients.
A few pertinent ques-
tions:


Have you ever invited
quasi-strangers (perhaps
someone new to the neigh-
borhood) to participate
in a social occasion under
your roof, and received no
answer?
Are there people who
have many times been visi-
tors in your home and
whose home you have nev-
er once entered?
Are there people whom
you have entertained -
perhaps many times for
meals who have never
reciprocated in any way?
The matter of reciproca-
tion is a sensitive one both
in implication and in fact.
How important is it that
we keep close track of our
"obligations" and never let
our outstanding debts to
others be overlooked?
Such obligations should
be as real and pressing as
those at a bank no debt
should be incurred unless it
is going to be repaid.
This applies equally to
social, as well as to financial
debts.
Any Gentleman or Lady
knows this fact.
The handling of such
social obligations is rightly
seen as symbolic of the true
character of the individual.
Today's normal society
demands that manners
often be curtailed in the
haste of getting things done
- "The ends justify the
means."
Today, many an orderly
man, of calm, even man-
ners, could, in public per-
haps, be mistaken for a
doorman!
Children as table guests
are welcome only at the dis-
cretion of their parents.
An ill-mannered kid
today might be sitting at a
table of dinner guests, and


suddenly, without permis-
sion, leave the table and
embark upon an out-of-
sight perambulation of the
host's home.
Who is responsible for
such outlandish manners?
The child? Or the parent?
Come to think of it, lots
of children today must
learn good manners with-
out ever having seen any at
home!
Manners are the under-
lying symptoms of custom
and law.
Eight year-old hep-kid
Garrett, son of our dear
friend Tonya, is inventive:
When Garrett's young
friends are in his family's
home, he takes them into
the kitchen and has them
read aloud his Rules of the
House posted on the refrig-
erator door. He leaves no
doubt as to how youngsters
must act if they want to be
guests under his parents'
roof! Tonya says she neither
initiated the list, nor the
reading.
Whatever made Garrett
decide to do this, it works.
Tonya has not had to re-
strain his friends, and he
has plenty of visitors!
In all things to do with
good manners, the sensi-
tive person heeds the final
arbiter on tap in the depths
of his own being: namely
noblesse oblige.
This still sweet inborn
voice that guides us in the
direction of our best in-
stincts should shape the
quality and tone of all we
think, say and do. Listen to
it!


LETTERS I Crist's proposed budget is optimistic


< continued from previous page

proposed by the governor is
for the state's two core mis-
sions.
The governor's budget
outlines his paramount
concerns about ensur-
ing Floridians are finding
gainful employment and
striving to make businesses
stronger. The governor is
proposing a 1 percent re-
duction on the corporate
income tax rate on the first
$1 million of a corpora-
tion's taxable income while
also providing for a 10-day
back-to-school sales tax
holiday as in previous years.
This tax holiday, accord-
ing to the governor, will
help Florida's families save
on school essentials such


as clothing and supplies,
while also stimulating the
economy.
The governor's proposed
budget places an emphasis
on funding education, with
an estimated $22.7 billion
for PreK-12 and a 2.61 per-
cent increase for public
per-student funding. He is
also calling for increased
funding for community
colleges and universities.
His budget also calls for
continued funding for the
continued steady decrease
of Florida's prison popula-
tion, while also looking to
preserve Florida's abundant
natural resources.
His optimism about Flor-
ida's economic future is one
to admire, and I commend
him for his continued dedi-


cation to education and
health and human services.
While his budget is cer-
tainly fiscally optimistic, we
in the Florida House must
continue to focus our con-
centrated efforts on ensur-
ing the budget is balanced
fairly and properly the first
time in order to prevent
any mid-year alterations to
the budget.
I welcome your feed-
back. If you are interested
in learning more about the
governor's proposed bud-
get or have any other ques-
tions or concerns, please
do not hesitate to contact
my office at 407-884-2023.
As always, it is an honor to
serve you.
